Jacinda Ardern won't stay on as leader of the Labour Party is she loses the election.
Ardern made the comment in the final leaders debate of the 2020 election campaign on TVNZ1 last night.
Ardern said she's been in politics long enough to know when it's the right time to move on.
"Our plan is to succeed on election night and we haven't taken that for granted, working very very hard for a successful result," Ardern said.
"My message would be that if people don't want to see me resign, then to vote for Labour."
National leader Judith Collins says she would stay on as Opposition leader with the party's backing, if she loses the election.
